Getting Ahead in IT

By Peter Piazza

If you are an IT security professional or are interested in becoming one, you’ll find a new career guide issued by (ISC)2 to be a helpful resource. The guide describes the types of jobs available (including typical job titles) and explores the various areas of expertise within information security, as well as educational requirements, technical skills needed, salary ranges, and the certifications that can help you advance your career. The guide also includes a list of schools offering IT security curricula and relevant professional associations. @ Career Guide: Decoding the Information Security Profession is at SM Online.
